Adam was born and raised in Lincoln, NE and has been in Denver since 2007. Adam and his wife, Michelle, are the proud parents of 3 kids -- Graham, Miles, and Merritt. As two full time working parents, Adam's children have been enrolled in quality franchised child care since they were infants. After seeing his own kids grow and prosper both socially and emotionally at daycare programs, Adam realized that he wanted to help his neighborhood community by opening Kiddie Academy with his good friend and colleague, Franz von Haas. Adam's family lives a few minutes down the street from The Academy, and is fully committed to providing the best care and education possible for your children. In his free time, Adam enjoys spending time with his family outdoors, skiing, hiking, and golfing.

Ally has been working with children for over twenty years in different capacities. From a young age she knew she wanted to work with children and studied Human Development and Family Studies while living in Fort Collins with the intention of working in elementary education. Shortly after the birth of her son, Cooper, in 2013 she found her true passion in Early Childhood Education. She began her journey as a toddler teacher and quickly worked her way into administration. This will be Ally's fifth year as a program Director and she is extremely excited to be a part of Kiddie Academy and the whole child curriculum approach. In her free time, like any Colorado native, Ally enjoys getting outdoors with her family and enjoying all that our beautiful state has to offer. Community building and providing a space where teachers and families work together to create a safe, educational, and loving space for each child is her top priority. She is eager to open our doors and meet each and every one of our Kiddie Academy families.

Franz has lived most of his life in Colorado, growing up in Aurora until attending college in Missouri, and then eventually moving back to Denver in 2010. Franz and his wife, Stefanie, are the lucky parents of big sister Zuri and her brother Zander. Seeing the benefits of structured childcare for his children, Franz committed to providing another quality childcare program. In January of 2019, Franz and his good friend and colleague, Adam Muhleisen, met with the Kiddie Academy team. After hearing Kiddie Academy’s passion and shared vision, Franz and Adam knew this was the right partnership and started the journey to bring Kiddie Academy to the Denver area. In his free time, Franz enjoys traveling, golfing, spending time outdoors, and of course doing whatever Zuri and Zander enjoy!
“Teachers are AMAZING ”
Rebecca W., Denver-Boulevard One
“Number one by far has been how easy KA is for two working parents. So many of the other good daycare options seem designed to only work if you have one parent at home. Only being closed on federal holidays and the few holiday breaks is HUGE. Having flexible drop off and pickup hours is… ”
James M., Denver-Boulevard One
“We love the teachers, creativity and amazing growth we’ve seen. Our two year old has learned to count, abc’s, put on her own coat, her vocabulary has expanded drastically and she is exposed to so many interesting lessons (weather, community, animals, science, history, etc) ”
Sara R., Denver-Boulevard One
“You guys are great and flexible ”
Patrick L., Denver-Boulevard One
“Every person that works at kiddie Academy is amazing, very nice, understanding, patience, passionate. I am truly blessed that my child receives so much love and care from all the staff. ”
Paris S., Denver-Boulevard One
“I like that there is time built into creative play (art expression), movement (outdoor time, indoor tumbling, and soon yoga!), reading, and social interaction through play and eating together. I like that each day/week has a theme. I like that many of the care providers/teachers are wonderful with children and have great energy and patience. ”
Lindsey T., Denver-Boulevard One
“Management is wonderful, and most of the teachers seem engaged and committed to delivering the stellar curriculum at Kiddie Academy. ”
Fred K., Denver-Boulevard One
“The school is great and clean. Sometimes it does feel a little stuffy walking in, some of the staff are not as friendly as others. Some are great! My one concern we are having in the class is the potty training. Maybe the teachers are not as skilled as hoped in helping us potty train.… ”
Heather B., Denver-Boulevard One
“Great and clean building, meals included, friendly staff members, enrichment activities like soccer ”
Minwoo J., Denver-Boulevard One
“Karla and Rae - awesome role models for my child and seem to really care. If they weren’t her in her classroom I’d not feel as comfortable with the level of learning / care / concern. The teachers make or break my child’s experience. ”
Celeste B., Denver-Boulevard One
